  4. These are beautiful, both of them. So many of the words in the first cloud are ones I can identify with.

    You left a comment on my blog the other day about not knowing my story. After 7 years of seeing doctor after doctor and being told everything from 'well if you lost some weight...' to 'it's all in your head' and tons of tests I finally found out that I have Parkinson's Disease and severe Familial Tremour (hereditary Essential Tremour) along with fibro, CFS, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, arthritis (need tests to determine if it's RA) and so on... After many years of not being able to control my body's movements and severe pain, not to mention not being able to drive safely, it was a relief to finally get a diagnosis and to have medications which allow me to live something approaching a normal life, at least for the time being.

    Thank you for asking and thank you, so much, for sharing your journey.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, I think a lot of us with chronic illness can identify with each other in so many ways.

      Thank you so much for sharing your story! Wow! I can't tell you how angry it makes me to hear you say they told you "it's all in your head." I had one doctor do that to me once, I never went back. I know a lot of others who that has and unfortunately will happen to. It's funny how getting a diagnosis brings us relief, I was excited to find out I had Sjogren's, then I realized what I had. I think it's just the knowledge of knowing we were right, it's not in our heads.

      I hope your medications continue to provide you the relief you need and deserve. Nobody should have to live in pain and to top it off be made to feel like it's their fault. Thank you again for sharing your personal story with me, I appreciate it more than you know. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers for more good days.
